, the front-runner so far out in front it is almost impossible to imagine anyone catching him is mitt romney. mitt romney seen here at the romney fundraiser today in london, england, of all places. mr. romney leads in all scientific international polls at this point, in all iowa polls, new hampshire polls, and in fundraiser. he is the front-runner and is front running alone. that is truism number one. truism number two is that the influence of the super conservative tea party wing of the republican party cannot be overstated in the nomination process this year. the combination of grassroots purist conservative anger and the unlimited corporate money makes the tea party faction a gatekeeper to the republican nomination for 2012 if not a king maker. so two truisms. number one, romney's going to win. number two, no one wins without the tea party on their side. the problem is that those two beltway common wisdom axioms about republican politics right now cannot co-exist. to the extent that the tea party faction is organized around republican presidential politics at all right now, they are organ
